Otis is a screech owl who lives at the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center in Mystic CT. Like nearly all the birds who live there, he can’t be released into the wild, though I don’t remember his specific reason. That said, one of the staff told us about the sharp-shinned hawk in the enclosure next door, who will be released later this week. Good news!
When we arrived at the inn on Saturday, the innkeeper wrote down the WiFi password for us. Just as she had done for many other people before….
We bought this hydrangea two years ago. It didn’t really bloom last year, and while so far this year it’s only got two blooms, they are stunning.
A concert at Harborlights (or whatever the hell it’s called these days) was the perfect excuse to have dinner at the No Name. I can’t remember the last time I was here…I think I was about 12.
At work today, we did a very simple craft project, expecting it to be too busy for something complex. Kids made a pendant out of a wood sample tile, hung it on a piece of yarn, then added it to our “chandelier” or wore it as a necklace. I really like how this picture came out.
The new mannequins may be more effective, but they don’t have the charm of Resuscitation Annie.
Look at the packaging on this thing, and try to tell a kid it’s not a toy. And PS…it totally is.
Had to bring my dad to an appointment today. His doc makes me laugh every time, though I kind of feel sorry for the guy; I mean, he was here long before….
I stepped outside to get a picture of the multi-colored flowers on this hydrangea, but there was bee buzzing among them, and that made a more interesting picture.
Cut myself on an exposed metal pole the other day, resulting in a perfect semi-circle. One of the “eyes” is a mostly natural freckle (I augmented it a bit), the other is totally artificial. What the picture doesn’t show very well is the nice round bruise making the shape of the face.
